Summary of awareness-raising campaign:
14 March 2020: Started campaign through social media messaging
15 March 2020: As part of an awareness raising campaign on the COVID-19 virus, JCI Patan Lady Nepal partnered with the Ministry of Health, received educational materials, support and a commitment to let us work on this initiative.
Under the leadership of JC. Oshin Oli and JC. Simran Sigdel, a small team worked with Patan Hospital to share pamphlets and educate people about how to take necessary precautions.
16 March 2020: Met
with Lalitpur Municipality on how we could coordinate our campaign
with them. After working through various
options, they gave us slots for two members to participate in a hand sanitizer
17 March 2020: JC Oshin Oli and JC Parika Pradhan joined the hand sanitizer training conducted by Lalitpur Municipality at Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). Observing the current situation and crisis caused by the Novel coronavirus, (COVID-19) the training was very helpful and needed. The program focused on how to use simple and easily available products to make sanitizer, as it has become a must-have product in the current situation. The shortage of sanitizer is also seen in the market place, so this training turned out to be very fruitful.
We also appreciate and thank Incessant Rain for sponsoring us in this initiative.
